Negative Pressure Wound Therapy for Prevention and Treatment of Purulent Septic Complications in Traumatology and Orthopedics


Negative pressure therapy is one of the newest methods used in the wounds treatment. It enables to accelerate and optimize the process of wound healing and hence to reduce the cost of treatment. Negative pressure stimulates proliferation of granulation tissue, provides continuous evacuation of exudate and effectively cleans wound surface. Treatment results for 251 patients with purulent septic complications after surgical intervention are presented. One hundred two patients had open fractures of extremity bones, 51 patients underwent total arthroplasty of large joints and 48 patients — scoliosis endocorrection.
